Each story will take you back to a magical time when people could teleport, animals could fly and reincarnation was simply a fact of life. 


Great book and highly recommended. A five-faced Brahma once existed—did you know that? Why does a snake's tongue have a fork? Do deities lie? Shiva wears a crescent moon on his head for what reason? The ubiquitous trio of Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu, known as the Trinity, is in charge of ensuring the continued existence of the human race and the world as we know it. They are widely worshipped deities in India, although little is known about some of their amazing tales. Award-winning novelist Sudha Murty weaves entrancing stories about the three most potent gods from antiquity as she travels by your side. Each tale will transport you to a mystical age where teleportation was commonplace, animals could fly, and reincarnation was a given.
